Fort Benton Schools School District 1
Log Number: LG-29-19-0277-19
The Fort Benton Schools School District 1 will develop a makerspace in the Fort Benton High School library. The library will also develop activities and after-school programs to engage students in innovative, problem-solving activities in a learner-centric environment. The library will work with stakeholders to solicit input on the design of the space. Once the space is updated, the library will host an open house for the community, students, and staff to experience the new space and equipment. The district will host a series of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) design and robotics challenges for students throughout the year. They will also open the space outside of traditional school hours and offer summer programs focused on STEAM fields, robotics, creative innovation, and free play. The new makerspace and associated programs will support the development of 21st century skills and literacies for Fort Benton High school students.
